Star Wars or Star Trek?

    Star Wars or Star Trek?

    As you know, a new Star Wars movie is coming. Tell me: Are you a Star Wars or Star Trek person? And why is that? I'm a Star Trek person myself.

    I am more Star Wars because I grew up with the first three movies.  I still prefer the original three to the prequels.  Will be interested in what the next ones bring out.  Never got into Star Trek

    When I was young I used to consider myself a Star Wars guy all the way. Star Wars had the more appealing adventure with fantasy elements and seemed better than having to watch what I then believed was boring dialogue driven science fiction in Star Trek.

    As an adult however I rediscovered Star Trek and learned to love it, from the campy original series to the more tonally serious Next Generation.

    So today I would consider myself a big fan of both series. I would say that Star Trek tends to have the better TV shows (Star Wars TV series are generally pretty lame) and Star Wars has the better movies (while I do like some of the Trek movies they never get to Star War's level).

    One thing that helped was the realization that Star Trek isn't dull science fiction but has its own fantasy elements such as the different "races" of aliens being fitted closely to standard fantasy "races". For example Vulcans are like elves, logical and in harmony with nature while their brethren the Romulans serve the function of the more wild Wood Elves or perhaps even Dark Elves. The tribal and honor bound warlike Klingons behave like Orcs. Ferengi are like goblins, mischievous and concerned with money.

    I could go on forever on the subject but I've rambled enough. I like both series equally.

    I grew up watching TNG and never saw the Star Wars movies, so I was primed to be a Star Trek fan! As an older teen/young adult I did watch the Star Wars movies and I have to say... I'm not a fan *ducks*. I think I'd probably prefer it if I watched one of the newer ones. I love the newer Star Trek movies.

    Hard to say since both feel like they are going downhill.  However, I like Star Trek more.

    The ships are neat in Star Trek.  While they aren't bad in Star Wars, they just aren't the same.

    Besides, have you ever watched the Star Wars Christmas Special?  Horrible stuff there.

    Star Wars for sure! Honestly I've never watched Star Trek, but haven't really wanted to, to be honest for some reason. The Star Wars series has such a great story.
